Welcome to ESOL/HILT at Arlington Science Focus!
Students at ASFS come from all over the world and speak many different languages. Each day brings fresh new opportunities for learning.
Our goals:

  • To ensure that our English language learners attain English proficiency in order to develop high levels of academic achievement.
  • To assist English language learners in meeting the same challenging academic content standards that all students are expected to meet.
    Program components:
  • High Intensity Language Training (HILT) for students with beginning to intermediate English proficiency
  • English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) for students with advanced English proficiency
  • Bridging for students who have exited from direct ESOL/HILT services
